About a month ago, I bought a bicycle and trailer. I loved the pair – they went together like peanut butter and jelly. I didn’t use the trailer much – I bought it to move my laundry from home to the laundromat and back. So often I’d leave it at my place while I took the bike to work.
Last Thursday, that trailer was stolen from my motel in Santa Cruz, CA.
It cost me $150.00. I’m really bummed out about it, because it was such a useful tool. The lesson for me is to keep little things like that locked up.
To the thief: I don’t know who you are, or why you took it, but I hope you would return it. I’ve notified the Santa Cruz Police Department, and I’ve notified the bike shop that it came from (they say it’s the only one they’ve ever sold, and that no other bike shop in Santa Cruz carries that line of trailers). I’ve even put in a prayer on your behalf. It was a nice little black trailer, and I do need it. If you have a heart (and you still have the trailer or can get it back), I’d really appreciate having it back, even anonymously – but preferably in good working order.
Also, for those of you familiar with the Bible: I do forgive, but I do press charges if it’s not returned by the thief.
